Yeah, I would have to say that love of D & Sp puts you in a category more limited than me, don't you think? IE, early era types that stop sometime in the 70s are probably more abundant than folks that say they like Dr & Sp...I have always recalled you have said that before.

Of course, as I always point out to JOTS, I did actually get to hear a lot of Eyes and some Altheas while I was going in 74-82, and then when I listened to tapes and such from 82-95 or so.

It's only in my "reawakening" period, since 05, that I have become this early era oddball. In a way, you could say I am just going thru a phase, like we all do, but mine has become an obsession, and one that I enjoy debating with folks (ie, when I defend "why" I have such a strong pull to 68 and find so much less to draw me to 77 or 82 or whenever).

I do still sneak a listen to PegO and CrFing from 75 now and again, but the truth is, if you add up all I have now, I probably have something like 400-500 CDs, and of those, I'd bet only 25 are post 73...and of those post 71, I play them maybe once every other yr or so.

Still waiting to give this Dark Star a listen. I over the past year or so have come to really enjoy it, as i usually would skip over it in the past. Since then i've found some good ones, mostly '72.

You know its crazy how some of us heads just don't listen to certain years, and we go through phases (songs, years, shows). I personally am the opposite and rarely touch anything before '71. I understand the phases and have come to believe that i will appreciate and understand certain years as i develop as a dead listener, as this has happened to me over my 7 years of dead jamming. I believe this aspect is what allows us heads to be obsessive, if you will. There is such a vast quantity of music that you can just beat yourself over the head with it for, forever!

just thought i'd kinda bring up this thought, im now gonna go check this dark star.

Yeah I usually skip '70-71, until recently I heard a recommendation on a show and a jam sounded like Jerry was quoting everything from the past and future. But then I lost track of it.

I'm only around 13.00 of 9-70 DS and it's a nice change from the Playin-Truck-Other nexus I usually go for. The whole show is familiar but different, like visiting the mountains of upstate NY after living California a long time.

BTW, what's the jam after 16.00?

LiA or others can speak more authoritatively on these "DS jam titles" as I don't keep track, BUT I think this one, if you mean 16' of 9-19-70, is called the "feelin groovy jam".
